FortiGate VMX targets Software-Defined Data Centers

Cybersecurity issues
Cybersecurity solutions vendor Fortinet announced its FortiGate VMX next-generation and internal segmentation firewall (NGFW/ISFW).

The FortiGate VMX with the VMware NSX network virtualization platform enables organizations to automate advanced cybersecurity in the Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC).

Fortinet developed FortiGate VMX to leverage the capabilities of VMware NSX network virtualization platform, enabling customers to automate the insertion, deployment and orchestration of FortiGate VMX for threat protection inside their data center environments.

NTT Com Security has been working with our clients and industry leaders like Fortinet to leverage the security benefits of network virtualization.

Dave Polton, chief technology architect at NTT Com Security, said: “Bringing cloud and security technologies together with the VMware vSphere and VMware NSX platforms enables our clients to benefit from security and efficiency as we transition them to a Software-Defined Data Centre (SDDC).”

VMware brings an SDDC approach to network security with micro-segmentation, isolating communications across unrelated networks, controlling the communications within a network and integrating with advanced security services like Fortinet’s Internal Segmentation Firewalls (ISFW).
